Amazingly a dry and reasonably warm survey and what a difference it makes! A total of 33 species identified and 420 individual birds. Highlights included 11 Lapwing, Skylark, a flock of 60 Fieldfare and 20 Redwing, 22 Linnet and 11 Yellowhammer. Great to see so many "glowing" Yellowhammers spread around the hedgerows and, hopefully, planning their nesting activities. Very surprising that this was the first record of Nuthatch for the site as woodland borders a great deal of the site.
